With several late CentOS 6.2 systems being built on the network I have been running into network disconnect and performance issues being caused by IPV6. Since I am currently not using it on my network I decided to disable it. Here is what I found from several different resources on the Internet.
We can modify /etc/sysctl.conf:
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
Disable in the running system:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6 echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/default/disable_ipv6
sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1 sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6=1
